Freshly Made Sketches #217

I cannot believe this is the last day of my vacation and I am back to work tomorrow. I wish my work days went as fast as my vacations days seem to go by. I could use a few more days off but by myself. Am I the only mother who feels this way?

Today I am sharing a card that I created for Freshly Made Sketches #217. The deadline is tomorrow and you would think that I would have uploaded it sooner then today. However, last minute Lucy is better then nothing at all.

I created this card with the "mess on my desk." I did a lot of stamping, die cutting and coloring before the holidays, thinking I would use them to make some projects. I never did. So I decided to use a few things I had on hand to create my card below.

Here is the Freshly Made Sketch #217 that I used to create this card:
I started off by inking the edges of a vanilla/cream card base with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then adhered a die cut piece of Basic Grey patterned paper over it. Next I adhered a die cut mug from My Favorite Things "Hug in a Mug" die-namics set.

I added the sentiment and the marshmallows on the front of the card with foam adhesive. The last step was to use Glossy Accents to give the "hot chocolate" a more realistic look. I think I am going to send this card off with a gift card to Starbucks or Duncan Donuts a little later this month. I am also toying with making a bunch of different "event" cards and giving them as Valentine gifts. I don't have to make a set of cards all matching, do I?

I thank you for stopping by tonight. Have a fantastic night.
